LEE CO., GA (WALB) - A Lee County firefighter and paramedic spoke out against possible changes to EMS work schedules at Tuesday night's county commission meeting.
Commissioners are considering moving crews from a 24-hour-on, 72-off schedule to a 24-on, 48-off schedule.
John Anderson and many of his Lee County co-workers also work for Dougherty County EMS.
He said the changes would prevent them from working at both places.
"We'll have to choose if they make the schedule change on whether to stay in Lee County or leave Lee County and stay in Dougherty County. That's a decision none of us want to have to make. It affects us financially, it affects our families," said Anderson.
Some commissioners said that the change would make EMS more efficient and save money.
No word yet on when they'll take a vote.
